    Re: This is Ålesund

    Well, the day has come where I finally managed to edit my pictures from the roadtrip I performed Wednesday 19. June...., and so are at the treshold of the cronological problem I mentioned when uploading pictures from my trip to Ålesund 25. June.

    Anyway, here we go with the 19th and from Naustveien at Hessa 07:30 in the morning, CELEBRITY INFINITY looked like this




    Rounding Slinnigsodden and the huge St. Hans woodfire there, erected to be lit the 23rd.

      Re: This is Ålesund

      There were three large ones in a rwo that Wednesday morning, and since AIDASOL sailed north of the city to dock at Flatholmen, CELEBRITY INFINITY were followed by QUEEN MARY 2




      I really like the view when they round the Slinningsodden. Wouldn't work in blue skies and bright sunshine though, as at 08:00 in the morning the sun is making a direct headlight...

      The Slinningsbua has most certainly seen better days

        Re: This is Ålesund

        The turning around of such a construction takes time, and it continued for a few more minutes






        The local passenger boat FJORDBUEN (going back and forth to Langevåg?) passed between me and the Queen several times


        She's a beauty!!!!


        Well, not every part of her though....

          Details of QM2


          Aksla with the restaurant in the background


          The two docking a...... (ehem).... stern to stern




          Well, which has the cutest....?


          Also had time to take other pictures when in Ålesund, and it's therefore I want to keep my images from the one and same trip together in one thread instead of spreading them around so I can't find them myself.
          This lead to maybe too many cruisepictures in a thread not intended for it, but I hope it's ok J-O??

            Nice view from Kaptein Linges vei on Hessa




            Over to images suited for this thread, and we start with the expert on Ålesund and city guide Harald Grytten, whi finally got his statue near Brosundet






            Also in Ålesund people clips locks to fences. Here are a few on the bridge over Brosundet

              Walking my way towards what I belive is Ålesundet




              Yeah...., a bit of fun as we walk...

                Images speak for themselves






                CELEBRITY INFINITY mirroring in the hotel wall vis-a-vis


                Then I walked up-town, to Ålesund church (1908)

                  Re: This is Ålesund

                  Near the church was a memorial to the fallen of second world war...


                  A few pictures showing the two cruiseships as a city backdrop.
                  ('ombugge'..., feel free to tell us where we are, I mean which street, what houses and so on)








                  Nice place to relax in front of the doors to the Brosundet Hotel

                    Re: This is Ålesund

                    Pax from the two ships (and the third one AIDASOL at Flatholmen) are starting to gather at Brosundet for mandatory photography


                    Walking in to the pedestrian street Kongens gate


                    In Kongens gate we have 'Tusentrappen' (the Thousand step), despite the fact that it only got 53 steps...
                    From my point of view, a beautiful architectial creature which should be brought more forward by moving that phonebooth and cutting of the tree.

                      From 'Tusentrappen' the crowd in front of the souvenir shop looked like this


                      Raise your hands the one who think Ålesund is not beautyful...


                      Cutter MAUD in front of Brosundet Hotel


                      Just had to combine the new spottermobil and QM2. Never get that chanse again, perhaps...


                      Photo opportunity of AIDASOL you say...??? Well, here you go, my one and only image...., as there were security all over...

                        Re: This is Ålesund

                        Time to say good bye and see you soon to Ålesund for this time...


                        Many of the cruise passengers had to try the over 400 steps up to Aksla


                        Hope you had a great time in Ålesund too, although virtually....

                          Re: This is Ålesund

                          Well I may be a bit rusty. Maybe Seagull is able to identify the places better tan me??

                          But I will try. 595.2: Prestegata looking towards Prestebrygga.

                          595.3: Helegata. (Taken from the the crossing with Owregata)

                          595.4: Probably from Helleborg (Not sure)

                          595.5: From Bakkegata?

                          Sorry if I'm out here. I haven't spent much time walking around this part of town since I delivered newspapers there in the 1950's.

                            I see you write a PM, TNAalesund...., and man, is it great to have you back!!!!!!! You are greatly missed man!!!
                            If that PM is for me, I have to read it later, as my bus to the Tahitifestivalen depart at 18:05 from my house.
                            Tonight we're listening to CC Cowboys and drinking beer. Isn't that great...? :-)

                              Thanks for the kind words, Sterkoder :-) This is really embarrassing since I promised you here on the forum to start posting pictures again.. and that did not happened...
                              I am really sorry for that. But I have now started in a new job here in Aalesund, and finally I have the time and the energy to get outside and shoot some pictures again :-) And I also got myself a new camera: Canon 60D :-)

                                My bus turned into the girl I share curtains with driving, so I got a few more minutes on my hand...

                                'TNAalesund' don't be sorry....., I'll cover for you as long as you need to.
                                I love Ålesund, and be assure, there are thousands of motifs to find...., 900 not to be found by someone who lives there.

                                Congratulations on your new job...., maybe we meet someday...?
